Serious Problems in Grapevine Divorces: What Spouses Can Do
Many divorces bring serious problems on the part of one or both spouses to light, including financial irresponsibility, poor parenting skills, substance abuse/chemical dependency issues, poor sexual behavior/judgment, domestic violence or other issues. Many of these issues can jeopardize your ability to achieve your goals, especially those related to child custody or unsupervised visitation.
If there has been a history of abuse or neglect in your marriage, the court may require that any visitation by the abusive or neglectful parent be supervised. Courts will often appoint a mutually agreed upon family member or a neutral third party to supervise visitation. The court may also appoint a designated supervision facility to conduct the supervision.
